Nepal Peak climbing information

Nepal Peak climbing information

We provide with you an experienced climbing mountain guide and strong porters for carrying your luggage and camping gear during your Nepal Peak climbing trip. If any member of the group became ill during the trip, the trip would still go ahead. Most of our climbing trips accommodate groups of up to twelve people since this is the most successful size. However, we can also accommodate larger groups upon request of the guest.

Arrangements for the trip

We will be staying at Hotel Samsara Boutique and Nepal cottage Resort, during the tea house trek. Rooms will be shared on a twin basis. Single supplements will be offered on request. The Nepal Alsace Trek will arrange rooms with attached bathrooms; however, teahouses in some places have shared bathrooms and toilets. At lower elevations, single rooms are plentiful in Kathmandu and in the trekking regions, but they can be hard to find at higher elevations.

Meals

Trekking and climbing in Nepal allow us to eat authentic Nepalese food as well as Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, and Chinese food. The teahouse lodge menu will be offered for breakfast and dinner where we stay the night, whereas for lunch we will find a lodge or homestay on the way to our next destination. The expedition climb will be done when we start our tented camp. Frequently, the cook serves fresh vegetables, meat, and fish, along with hygienic preparations in the Camping trek. A bit higher will be alpine-style food.

A travel insurance policy

Travel Insurance is highly recommended for all clients who are going to take part in any of our adventure activities. Insurers must provide coverage for personal accidents, medical expenses, air ambulance/helicopter rescue services, and liability. 

Please provide us with your insurance policy before you depart. However, we would already have requested a copy of your insurance policy when you booked with us. If you are insured, please make sure you have the policy number and the emergency contact information for your insurance company. For emergency situations, we need the required information from your insurance company if this is not available.   

In addition to giving you peace of mind while you travel with us, good travel insurance will also provide you with complete coverage in case anything goes wrong. 

Adjustment

Acute Mountain Sickness is a concern that has been factored heavily into the itinerary for this trek. If you ascend too fast at high altitudes, you can become sick so seriously that you can die. There is less oxygen at high altitudes. In altitudes over 5000m, Oxygen is 50% less than at sea level. Due to this, our bodies typically need a lot of time to adjust to a low-oxygen environment.

An attempt to prevent AMS to the maximum extent possible. However, some visitors are at greater risk than others.

When is the best time to travel

This trip is most enjoyable in spring, from March to May, and in autumn, from September to November. During winter, this trip may be difficult due to ice or snow blocking the pass. While trekking routes are busy in spring and autumn, they are less crowded during the monsoon and winter, when we can fully appreciate nature.
